Wesley Sneijder has insisted he is not in a hurry to make a decision over to which club he will move during the current transfer window.

Sneijder has been frozen out of first team duty at Inter following his refusal to sign a new contract which would mean a €2M per year pay cut.

Inter have accepted a €10M bid from Turkish champions Galatasaray for Sneijder, but the Dutchman has been stalling on the move, as he waits to see if a concrete option from the English Premier League comes his way.

This has led Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim to blast Sneijder, an unusual move given that the Istanbul outfit want to sign the playmaker.


There is thought to be some interest from England, and Sneijder has had to speak out on talk of a bid from Liverpool and of a switch to Tottenham Hotspur – but there is not yet anything concrete.

And so he waits.

"There are basically two weeks until the transfer market concludes on 31st January", he told Dutch daily the Algemeen Dagblad.

"Enough time to think, to weigh up the options and see what else comes my way."

The 28-year-old continues to be rated as one of the game’s chief creative talents, but his large salary at Inter, some €6M per year, has put off suitors.
